Correction: Prayers Do Have an Impact

This morning we linked to a study of more than 1,800 patients who underwent heart bypass surgery that failed to show prayers specially organized for their recovery had any impact.

Now, as a good blogger must, we're back to report that we got it wrong. The prayers did have an impact:

Sometimes it's even worse than we think.
